Will the PHYSICAL Jewish Temple Be Rebuilt During the Tribulation?

Because the average Jew is lost today, those living in Israel want to see the Temple rebuilt. They believe – again, wrongly – that through the reestablished sacrificial system, they will once again be able to draw close to God. It will only be through that – building the Temple and establishing sacrifices again – that they will see how wrong they are, especially when the coming Antichrist goes into the Holy of Holies and literally sits down inside it declaring himself to BE God as Antiochus did in 168 BC. It will be the same mistake repeated! This is also the fulfillment of Satan’s five “I will” promises in Isaiah 14 as we’ve discussed in other articles. Satan, working through Antichrist, will RULE the world and will do his level best to make himself to appear to be LIKE God to humanity. Titus wasn’t even close to being the coming Antichrist. This future Antichrist will rise among the ten “kings” (Revelation 17) and once he does, will “uproot” three of them (by killing them) and will become ruler over them. But this cannot happen until the world becomes ONE under a new world order. We’re not there yet, though it’s coming rapidly.

Between the 69th and 70th SEVENS

That there is a “gap” of indeterminate amount of time between the 69th “week” and the 70th “week” is a problem for many. The folks who ignore or reject this idea do so because they think that people like me have simply and arbitrarily put an artificial “gap” between those “weeks” because we felt like, because that’s how we make things work. Not so. In fact, not even close.

Daniel’s 70 Weeks is NOT 70 Years!

It is the same thing here in Daniel 9. Gabriel is really giving a bit of a play on words. In essence, as Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum points out (“Footsteps of the Messiah”), Gabriel is essentially saying, “Daniel, it’s not 70 years, but 70 SEVENS of years.”

Jesus Explains End Times Protocol, Pt 7

In our last article, we briefly went over Daniel 9 and determined that the word “weeks” should have been more accurately translated “sevens.” We were then able to show that the total amount of time indicated by Gabriel was to be viewed in years, based on the entire context of the chapter itself. You’ll recall that Daniel had been reading Jeremiah and realized that the prophesied 70 years of captivity was almost concluded. During Daniel’s prayer, Gabriel came along and gave Daniel understanding. In essence, Gabriel told Daniel that the captivity wasn’t 70 years, but 70 “sevens” or 70 times 7 years for a total of 490 years.

Jesus Explains End Times Protocol, Pt 6

It’s the same thing here. Gabriel is actually using a bit of a play on words. Daniel had just read from Jeremiah that the 70 years were nearly over and the Jews would be released from their bondage. Gabriel comes along to say essentially yes, you will physically be released, but your city (Jerusalem) will continue to be controlled by Gentiles, not for 70 years, but for 70 sevens of years. We know that this “sevens” must refer to years because the entire context of Daniel 9 is referencing years.
